Thursday evening witnessed the third and most successful Jumeirah Cruisin’ event yet. While the original plan was to have the show at the Kite Surf beach, unforeseen situations caused us to relocate back to Bikers Cafe, which was the perfect venue as it turned out. Cars (and motorcycles too!) started to come in as early as 2PM, when the show was scheduled to kick off only by 4PM. Heavily modified SUVs and pick-up trucks were the first to arrive, followed by an amazing selection of motorcycles, including Ducatis, TGB with their beautiful Bellavita scooters, Yamaha riders and, of course, the fabulous Neutron Motorcycle was also on hand to wow the guests. With the BBQ was scheduled to start by around 6PM, more and more unique cars started to roll in – supercars, classic and vintage autos, rat rods, hot rods and what not. There was a huge crowd dropping by simply to view the stunning metal on display and pose for photos with them. We would sincerely like to thank everyone for coming down and making this another special event, and look forward to the next Jumeirah Cruisin’ which will be even bigger and better.
